KG’s Blog Post #188 – 9/4/13 11:27pm (Montreal Championship starts Friday – tough course)
Holy batman! Custer is alive and ready for his sequel [2013 Montreal Championship, Champs Tour, Sept6-8 http://www.championstourmontreal.com/home ]. Before I go farther don’t take what I’m about to say as being negative it’s just simply factual points. Custer may not have known what was going to hit him but I do! The powerful long driver that I am is now 15 yards shorter due to that insane nasty wound in the leg. Bad break, but I just can’t push tiddly as it is right now. This 7000 yard course just went to 7400. The bad news is the fairways are so soft it’s scary and the newly redone greens are firm as hell. So my 3-wood & 5-woods won’t be holding too well.
There are 3 holes I’m going to play has par 5’s because I can’t get there period. So that’s the early bad report and now to the good news. The greens are in very good shape and Johnny putter could save the day. The weather is supposed to be good on Saturday and cold as heck the other 2 days, with Friday being in the 50’s when I fire it. I can say this that this will be the hardest course they play on this tour period.
In my heyday this place would have been hard. I would be shocked if the winning score got to any better than 9 under and that might be someone who just went nuts. However, the officials may very well know the weather and the course is really hard and might ease up on the tee & pin locations. The rough is as high as you will see out here also (just high enough where you can’t control your distance and even grabs the club at times), and with the new greens being hard it will be very hard to control any shots out of the rough. Even the studs will struggle and hit many shots out of the rough either short or catch fliers and then have to chip back onto the greens.
I’m going to practice in my brain how I can stop hitting my drives short and to the right like today but I know it’s because of the leg wound I just have to figure out a Band-Aid swing without making a swing. Was that idiot Confucius that smart and able to do that. I’m greenfucuk and this grasshopper will meditate and devise plan. Munch loves the weather though and he didn’t even bark at Peter patrol person.
